9:33 pm
and rescue efforts right now? >> thank you. certainly emergency crews, first responders continue to work hard throughout the night. as you can imagine, it is a lot more difficult now because it is nighttime, because the power is out for tens of thousands of homes in the state. and so they are doing the best that they can. also dealing with debris that in the roadway and things like that and so certainly the search continues and expect it will continue throughout the night and we are also looking at the prospect of more severe weather tomorrow and so certainly they are working as quick as they can to make sure that everybody can be accounted for. >> can you tell us anything, have they been able to find any survivors? i talked to the office of emergency management earlier and they said they didn't have anything new on that. have you heard anything else? >> i think a lot of it now is
9:34 pm
making sure that family members are accounted for. they may be in shelters. there are shelters at community centers, schools, churches, throughout all of the communities that have been hit. so a lot of times it is making sure that loved ones can get in contact and just track down where their relative or friend might be because again cell phone service isn't necessarily working in these area. some people have lost their cell phones or other ways that they communicate. there is no way to charge those devices up. and so it is just making sure that those people may be accounted for in a shelter or in a hospital. we know that several have been taken to the hospital. some in critical condition. >> what can people do that are watching this and seeing the destruction and seeing that people are going to be in need of help what can people do? >> well, certainly any contribution to the red cross, the sal expectation salvation s

9:37 pm
that program in 2007. the same year suspecting he was a source of the new york times leak they raided his home. >> my son answered the door they pushed him back at gun point they came up stairs i was in the shower and one guy came in and pointed the gun at my head ant said come on out. >> an fbi agent points a gun at your head and you are naked in the shower? >> i had a towel. >> he denies being a leaker and ulth matly was not charged with any triem. but a fe -- charged with any cr. a fellow whistleblower was. drake was indicted 5 counts of espionage. they dropped the charges in a deal where he pleaded guilty to a single misdemeanor of misusing a government computer. >> the agreement with the reporter i would not share anything that was classified in any way, shape or form. i continued to believe him. it was lawful and it was appropriate. >> as the director of the nsa from 1999 to 2005 general
9:38 pm
michael hayden was drake and benny's boss. >> they may have a different view god bless them. this is america have a different view. i think it made america safe during a feperiod of great dange were. >> he says benny and drake were wrong, uninformed when they said the program was illegal. congress which in 2008 explicitly legalized much of the surveillance going on and president obama who recently reauthorized the law agreed. that makes drake as worried as ever. he believers president obama has used that power even more aggressively than the man democrats accused of shredding the constitution, george w. bush. >> i have had private conversations with people who used to work in the bush administration the reaction is whoa we wouldn't have gotten away with half of what the obama administration is doing. >> the regime has expanded. >> far less transparent than the
9:39 pm
bush administration? >> yes. >> that's another reason why pen benny and drake have been critics of the data certainty. >> the question is what are they doing with it, what are the controls, what are the over sites? >> one man hopes to answer it the current director of the national security agency, general keith alexander. when he declined request to sit down with us for an interview we sat down with the a washington think tank where he was speaking at a cyber security event. >> will the utah data center hold the data of american citizens? >> no. we don't hold data on u.s. citizens, the people there at nsa. they take protecting your civil liberties and privacy as the most important thing that they do in securing this nation. and so when people just throw out, oh, they are going to have all of this stuff at utah data center that's bologna. that's ludicrous. i am not going to come out and say here's what we are doing at
9:40 pm
utah. that would be ridiculous, too, because it would give our adversaries a tremendous advantage. we are not going to do that. >> benny says alexander stations missed the point. this is not about the character of his former nsa colleagues it's about the possibility that the government's stunning new capacity to collect, store and analyze data will test less than normal leaders if not now, than in the future. >> really a turnkey situation where it could be turned quickly and become a totalitarian state pretty quickly. the capacities to do that is being set up. if we get the wrong person in office or in government, they could make that happen quickly. >> life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. we balance those three virtues all of the time. the question milike me ask the american people, how much more do you want me to do? >> what can a government computer know? how can it know it? but the nsa mum we go to silicon

valley for answers. a little later... >> how many of you have an iphone, an android, a galaxy. >> teaching kids how not to ruin their lives with a smart phone. for over 125 years we've been bringing people together. today we'd like people to come together on something that concerns all of us...obesity. and as the nations leading beverage company we can play an important role. that includes continually providing more options. giving people easy ways to help make informed choices. and offering portion controlled versions of our most popular drinks. it also means working with our industry to voluntarily change whats offered in schools. but beating obesity will take continued action by all of us. based on one simple common sense fact, all calories count. and if you eat and drink more calories then you burn off
9:42 pm
you'll gain weight. that goes for coca cola and everything else with calories. finding a solution will take all of us. but at coca cola we know when people come together good things happen to learn more visit still doesn't feel real. our time together was... so short. well, since you had progressive's total loss coverage, we were able to replace your totaled bike with a brand-new one. the tank, the exhaust... well, she looks just like roxy! you know, i'll bet she's in a better place now. i'm sure she is.

9:45 pm
can they? claudia would ycowen reports. >> we are teach ago computer to go through large enough data and look at patterns and understand what they mean. >> gary angel is head of simphonics. that makes it one of the most experienced players in the data gathering game. a big part of what the folks do is scan the web and analyze data. it's not unlike what the nsa will try to do at the utah data center. sift through the noise and all of the world's electronic communications, isolate the fragments of troubling data then connect the dots before a threat materializes. >> what do you think would surprise people most about data mining? what do they know?
9:46 pm
>> iveng how clumsy it is. how much work goes into a single inclusion of the data. i think there's a sense that computers can do far more than they actually can. >> the biggest challenge isn't collecting and storing it it is making sense of it all. >> there's a selection of terms that a national security person might be interested in. things like radio active or nuclear power or bridges or stations or airports. here's the tricky stuff, if we miss stuff we don't know it. on the other hand, if you turn up lots and lots of things that you say might be threats and none of them are people lose confidence in the data. it's the old cry wolf syndrome. >> according to angel even big brother faces road blocks. if the nsa wants to track you the you utah data center will have theable to do it. -- will be able to do it.
